Smart Light Switches

When it comes to smart lighting, one of the seamless and natural way to upgrade your home is with smart switches. If you have several lights in your ceiling, installing smart light switches is the most practical way to let you integrate those fixtures into your smart home. Like traditional light switches, smart light switches have a physical toggle, paddle or button to turn your fixtures on and off. Pair these switches with Wi-Fi and you can control your switches using Amazon Alexa, Google Home or from your smartphone, tablet or other electronic device. Before installing smart switches into your home, here are a few things to also to consider: 

  • Smart Bulbs - Not only let you remotely turn on the lights or put them on a schedule, but some are also capable of letting you change the color.
  • Smart Plugs - Keeping things simple, a smart plug will let you turn on an existing lamp with a lightbulb into one you can turn on and off from anywhere.
  • Smart Switches - These allow you to control the light switches in your home with a few added features such as dimming or a pop-out remote.
  • Compatibility - Before choosing which switch to go with, consider what these are compatible with. Pairing with voice-controlled devices such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home will increase the possibilities with how you control your home into limitless options.  
  • Current Light Bulbs - Are my current light bulbs compatible? Like any dimmer switch, make sure the smart switch you're looking at purchasing is compatible with the lights you have installed - especially if they're LED lights.

At David Gray Electrical, we are always ready to assist you with upgrading your home with any option you choose from. Take control of your home with geofencing technology which turns your lights on, opens your garage door and so much more as you pull up in the driveway. Away from home? That's not an issue with Wi-Fi enabled switches, you can control your house from virtually anywhere.

Smart Outlets

Thanks to modern technology in 2020, smart outlets have increased the control we have on small appliances. These outlets have been outfitted with virtual personal assistants, like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Using their respective voice commands, you can turn devices on and off that are connected to a smart outlet. Finding the right smart outlet for your home can take some time and research, since so many are available to choose from. The experts at David Gray Electrical can help you decide what is best for your home, whether you're starting out at the beginning or adding more options. 

Doorbell Camera

Doorbell cameras are part of the ever-growing list of options to add to your smart home. With the plethora of news stories and articles about how many things happen on the front porch, it is not a surprise that installing a doorbell camera is a wise option for most homeowners. Installing a Wi-Fi enabled doorbell camera, you'll have an instant connection to what is happening at home. While shopping for your doorbell camera, here are a few things to keep a look for before you make your final decision: 

  • Does the doorbell have wires or cables?
  • Is it Android or iOS compatible?
  • Does it include real-time hear/speak/see options?
  • Is it equipped with PIR detection and Smart Night Vision?
  • How much power does it use?
  • How often do you need to change out the battery?

Floodlight Cameras

Give yourself peace of mind anytime and anywhere with smart floodlight cameras. Adding this to your home automation arsenal is another popular option for homeowners. Equipped with motion detection or set on a timer, you can stop intruders in their tracks- all while recording and storing footage. With various options to choose from, you can ensure you will know what is happening in real-time.  With Wi-Fi capability, you can use Amazon Alexa, Amazon Echo or Google Home to take full control of every aspect of your home. Countless stories have been published on the benefits of added security with real-time cameras. 

At David Gray Electrical, we are always ready to assist you with upgrading your home with any option you choose. From doorbell cameras to smart light switches and smart plugs, there are endless opportunities for your home devices at the touch of your screen.
